largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost entirely and concentrate on the economy and putting forth a healthcare plan that makes sense. everything else really doesn't matter. it's all about wages, jobs, and health, that's it. if the g.o.p. does not consolidate its message, it will not capitalize on mr. obama's troubles. it's as simple as that and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction, with us the former governor of alaska and vice presidential candidate sarah palin has a new book out called "great tidings and great job protecting the heart of christmas. two segments tonight. am i going wr

, as south african president jacob zuma put it today, the country's greatest son. >> this is the moment of our deepest sorrow. our nation has lost his greatest son. >> shortly after the news of nelson mandela's death reached the white house, president obama said this. >> i am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my very first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. i would study his words and his writings. the day he was released from prison gave me a sense of what human beings can do when they are guided by their hopes and not by their fears. we will not likely see the likes of nelson mandela again. so it falls to us, as best we can, to forward the example that he set to make decisions not guided by hate but by love. never discount the difference that one person can make, to strive for a future that is worthy of his sacrifice. for now, let us pause and give thanks for the fact that nelson mandela lived. a man who took history in his hands and bent the arc of th

-working, optimistic kid has the same incredible chance that this country gave me. dr. king once said, of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking. not anymore. if you still don't like obama care, you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for. not just what you're against. >>> here at 30 rock, we are counting down to tonight's lighting of the famous rockefeller christmas tree. that war on christmas, a lot of hum bug, of course. but as president obama prepares to join in the national tree-lighting on friday, he's got a few other things to attend to. first, including a long list of policy goals that he wants to achieve for the american people. starting, of course, with the affordable care act. the affordable care for all. so just this afternoon, the president kept up his three-week push to promote the affordable care act. this time in a white house youth summit. >> i'm going to need you all to spread the word about how the affordable care act really works. what its benefits are, what its protections are. and most importantly, how people can sign up. i kno

to go into the country and to actually determine whether or not iran is serious. so that will be one of the big determinates about iran o's lev of seriousness in terms of going forward with this deal. president obama also pointing to the fact that of $100 billion worth of sanctions, they are easing about $7 billion of those sanctions, leaving in the strong and sort of core parts of the sanctions program. of course, that, not enough to convince skeptics, israelis, a majority of them say this deal is not a good enough deal. prime minister benjamin netanyahu also saying that this deal isn't strong enough, doesn't do enough to curb iran's nuclear program. he is going to speak at the sabon center tomorrow, by the way, craig. we'll likely get a very different take on this deal that's come together from him. but i think that president obama's goal today was to speak to israelis and certainly to some of the skeptics here within the united states. a lot of them in congress who have said the deal doesn't go far enough. >> nbc's kristen welker at the white house, we're going to come back to you

by winnie he walked out of there but changed the country from rancor and hostility and said no we're going to reconcile. this became a viable winning tactic in the life of someone like barack obama that i think never left him and i would say helped to lead him towards the kind of change and hope dynamic that he helped to make central in his own political career. so i don't think it's a leap to say the impact that the spirit of mandela and that movement had on our own president. >> katty kay? >> i just want to ask rick something about the international concerns about mandela when he came out of prison because as you point out he was committed to arms struggle in south africa. he refused to give up the arms struggle as a negotiating tactic to get him out of prison. i was in cape town the day he walked out of prison and we didn't know what nelson mandela was going to be like. was he going to be the marxist that went into pry son, was he going to have this reconciliation. in the context of the cold war, rick, the uncertainty surrounding what south africa would become was palpable. >> yes. nobo

as a positive step. but president obama was not taking a victory lap just yet when he made candid remarks at a forum yesterday. >> we have to not constantly assume that it's not possible for iran, like any country, to change over time. it may not be likely. you know, if you asked me, what is the likelihood we're able to arrive at the end state i was just describing earlier, i wouldn't say that it's more than 50/50. but we have to try. >> joining me now is democratic senator benn cardin. >> pleasure to be with you. >> let's talk about the president. he's putting the chances of success at about 50/50. where do you put it? >> well, it's difficult to have a lot of confidence in what iran is doing. we know that they are still proceeding with a nuclear weapons program. we now have this interim agreement. we have to make sure that it is carried out to the letter and that there's negotiations to an agreement that would eliminate iran's capacity to enrich uranium to a nuclear fuel capacity for a weapon. and that's the challenge. as the president pointed out, we're going to have to be very cautious
